… with nature.

I was fortunate enough to go to two outdoor trips this month. The first one was a weekend trip up in the Catskills for my friend’s bachelor party. I’ve admittedly never been to a bachelor party, so it was pleasant to know that it was very much unlike the alcohol-fueled parties that you see on TV.

This one was spent in a quiet town where people hiked during the day and made home-cooked meals at night. We also got lots of sleep!

… with co-workers.

The second outdoor trip that I went to was with co-workers in Palm Springs. Since we all work remotely, teams in the company get together once a year to get to know each other and talk about our plans for the next year. We got to talk about the future of the design team, and the future of our work.

On the side, we got to swim, hike on Mt. San Jacinto, hike with goats in Pioneertown (archive), and then hike in Joshua Tree National Park.

… with family and friends.

I also stayed for a few days in Los Angeles to spend time with tito and tita, grandparents, cousins, and my buddy Katherine before I flew back to Philly. I rarely get to make it to California (last time was 2017), so it was good to carve out some time to catch up with people.
